"Bodytite on abs and flanks - I've always hated my love handles, no matter how much I work out or diet even when I was young that's where weight would stay. Finally I decided to do something about it! After doing a ton of research I decided BodyTite was for me. Now about a year after my procedure I can say it was totally worth it. I was swollen for maybe 9-10 weeks because they did some liposuction too, but I could tell a difference right away & my best results seemed to show at about 6 months after my BodyTite."- R. / RealSelf / Feb 05, 2020
"My clients think I'm ten years younger than my age! - I have had amazing results using Dr Hanz. He is so down to earth and can relate to anyone. The results I received are unbelievable. My clients think I'm ten years younger than my age! The procedure is painless and I was back to work in no time!"- J. / RealSelf / May 21, 2020
"Botox done right! My husband and I tried Botox for the first time and Dr. Hanz was gentle and caring. He let us decide what we wanted and what we were comfortable with. There was no "you should get this, or you need this" - Dr. Hanz is the kind of doctor we all need. I will definitely be going back. Thanks Dr. Hanz!"- T.O. / Google / Dec 19, 2020
"After searching for the perfect doctor to give me my dream body for 3 years I finally found the doctor for me! I got liposuction and a Brazilian butt lift from Doctor Hanz and he absolutely exceeded my expectations. I could not be happier and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone! He did exactly what I asked for and then some. I was nervous about having a fake looking butt and he gave me the most perfect round athletic looking butt. I had a pooch and love handles for the longest time and they are completely gone! All the other doctors I met in the past didn't really seem like they cared, but Dr Hanz listened to me with patience and answered all of my questions thoroughly! I am so grateful I met him and chose him to give me the body I have been wanting for years. The procedure was not under anesthesia and I recovered so quickly. If I could give 100 stars I would!"- D.B. / Google / Oct 13, 2020
"I had lipo 360 with Dr. Hanz. I didn't experience any pain during thanks to the medications. After the procedure I was very sore, but I was back at work at 830a the next day. The soreness has lasted since, but has gotten better & hasn't restricted me from my day to day routine. I was able to shower 48 hours after my procedure so I was able to take the garment off. I knew I was going to be swollen, but even with the swelling I could see visible results. I cried happy tears because I couldn't believe it. The nurses & doctor have been more than amazing throughout this process by checking in & making sure I am doing well. I cannot wait to see my results week after week! **Update** It's been about 10 months since my first procedure. I had my 2nd procedure 2 weeks ago on a totally different area! Much easier recovery since it was just arms and not my entire midsection. Soreness, but nothing keeping me from my everyday routine. I was back at work the next day with this procedure as well. Fabulous procedure, amazing staff, & life-long results that have made me so much more confident."- H.H. / Google / Sep 30, 2020
Would I Be Able to Have Body Contouring?
Body contouring may help someone who has sagging skin, deflated body parts (such as the breasts or buttocks), or fat in areas that are simply hard to lose. The lower back, hips, flanks (love handles), neck, and abdomen are common examples of areas where fat deposits can collect, causing unsightly bulges. Great candidates for body contouring in Dallas, TX are individuals who:
- Are at a healthy and ideal weight
- Are able to maintain that weight
- Desire a tighter, more defined body
- Do not have a medical condition that may impair their ability to heal
How Does Body Contouring Work?
At Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Dallas, TX residents can receive body contouring for troublesome areas of their otherwise healthy body. Many people consider body contouring on their stomach, waist, buttocks, hips, thighs, or arms to reduce areas of fat and create a slimmer or smoother appearance of a troublesome area. During your consultation, Dr. Hanz will devise a treatment plan for your desired outcomes and discuss realistic expectations. The goal during body contouring surgery is to create very small incisions that will remove unwanted fat and excess skin, leaving a slimmer, tighter appearance.
What Should I Expect with Body Contouring?
If you only received one procedure, you will be sent home to recover. In the event you chose to have multiple procedure, it could require you staying overnight. Dr. Kevin Hanz will discuss post-op scenarios with you as you create your body-contouring plan. Body contouring is meant to sculpt the body so you will start notice a slimmer, tighter body and a more defined physique within six weeks, while it typically takes 2 – 3 months for full results to be shown. Results should be long-lasting as long as you maintain your stable weight. Dr. Hanz will discuss follow-up appointments as necessary.
Frequently Asked Questions about Body Contouring
How much will body contouring surgery cost me?
The cost for body contouring will be based on what's included in your treatment plan. Once your plan is made, Dr. Hanz will be better able to estimate costs and discuss your options for payment. Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery accepts many payment types, including low-interest financing.
Will insurance pay for my body contouring surgery?
While most elective surgeries aren't usually covered by insurance, it is possible that body contouring could be eligible for insurance coverage if loose skin is causing medical problems. Coverage varies based on your insurance carrier and individual policy, but if you would like to submit an insurance claim, please let Dr. Hanz know during your consultation. A member of our team at Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery can help you work with your insurance for maximum coverage.
What will be part of my body contouring surgery?
The combination of procedures will be decided in your consultation with Dr. Hanz. Your body contouring may be done in stages based on your general health and how many areas are being addressed. Typically, the grouping will be with a combination of either the upper body parts (stomach, breasts, arms, face, neck) or the lower body (butt, thighs, hips, knees). This is done to minimize the possibility of complications, such as blood loss and infection. This also shortens the length of recovery. Dr. Hanz will discuss this with you while creating your treatment plan
Will I have scarring after my surgery?
In general, body contouring surgery will leave scarring. Many patients discover that once the incisions heal, they no longer worry about scarring as the benefits are so great. A skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon, like Dr. Hanz, will make every effort to hide the appearance of scars by placing the incisions in the natural skin folds. Topical creams might be recommended to improve the healing process. In time, the scars will lighten and blend in with your normal skin.
How long will my body contouring results last?
With proper care, your body contouring results will be long-lasting. To help maintain your results, you should maintain a healthy weight. Significant weight changes or pregnancy after your body contouring surgery can impact your results. Natural aging will continue so you will eventually notice loose skin again as you get older. Talk to Dr. Hanz about suggestions that can help your results last.
